ArtsPool's corporate structure

ArtsPool LLC

ArtsPool is intended to operate as a member-owned and managed cooperative. Our legal structure includes two entities. ArtsPool LLC, the parent company, contains our governance and decision-making committees and is the source of our outside financing. ArtsPool LLC is a party to a fiscal sponsorship agreement with A.R.T./New York, which allows us to raise contributions on a tax-deductible basis and from tax-exempt foundations. ArtsPool LLC is not a nonprofit organization in the legal sense, but operates without a profit-seeking motive. Our goal is sustainable operations for the members of our cooperative organization at the lowest possible “break-even” cost. ArtsPool LLC is a Delaware company.
